The impact of the PGS Ramform technology on marine seismic exploration is uncontested. The Ramform design produces performance levels and efficiencies that continue to set new industry standards for high-technology seismic acquisition. Today approximately 80% of the world’s advanced technology seismic surveys have been acquired using PGS Ramforms — the most advanced seismic fleet afloat.
This boat launched the Ramform class and was the first ever seismic vessel to tow eight streamers, the first to acquire over 1,000 square kilometers in a month, the first to tow 12 streamers and the first to acquire 100 square kilometers in a single day.
The Ramform Explorer is expected to enter the port of Rotterdam this afternoon and will berth at the Waalhaven.
